Vision therapy is used to improve vision skills such as eye movement control and eye coordination. Vision therapy can be
prescribed following a comprehensive eye exam that indicates it is an appropriate treatment. The specific program of therapy is based on the results of standardized tests, the needs of the patient, and the patient’s signs and symptoms. Programs typically involve eye exercises and the use of lenses, prisms, filters, occluders, specialized instruments, and / or computer programs. All ophthalmic personnel can benefit from an overall understanding of Vision Therapy.
